Brown boots

I've wanted brown boots for ages, and came across these in a shop today for £80.

Can I have your opinions please, wise ladies?

Another question too...would I be stuck just wearing black clothes/coats with them (I mean it's quite a bright brown, I'm worried about them clashing with my outfits).

I'm not keen tbh. I think I would prefer them if the front was smooth, rather than with the ripple effect or if the heel was less dainty.

I struggle with brown boots because I never know what to wear with them, apart from denim or black so will be watching this thread to see what people suggest too.

I'm not keen on the boots either, I'm afraid; don't like the ripple/ruched effect, and agree that a blockier heel would be nicer.

BUT as for the colour, I'd wear those with pretty much anything (except perhaps red/brown things as they might look as if I was trying to match and failing). I have brown boots and wear them with blue, pink, green ... I think brown is quite neutral, even a bright brown like that.

I love brown boots, but not those I'm afraid. I think they go with a lot of colours so you'd get a lot of use out of the right pair.

I really like them and think they will go with loads of colours, be brave!

Thanks cereal... I was starting to doubt myself there!

The daintiness of the heel is one of the things I love most about it. I think they'd look great with leggings or tights and a skirt, teamed with a structured coat.

I like the ruching/ripple effect because it allows the toe to appear less rounded than it is, because much as I love them, I can't do pointy toes (ouch!).

Thanks for all the feedback, girls...very interesting. I think that's good advice about avoiding browns/reds.
